While inerrancy is an important belief, the eternal salvation of an individual is not dependent upon a person’s view of the subject. That is determined solely upon ones relationship with Jesus Christ. However, inerrancy is an essential, foundational concept and its importance should not be minimized. The Doctrine of Inerrancy Defined.   This prompted me to post some thoughts that hopefully illustrate the central importance of maintaining and defending, not just the accuracy and inerrancy of the texts, but also of the patristic and Traditional understanding of the texts as inerrant and historically reliable. This is not a strict “scientific” treatment.

These books will help you recognize the importance of inerrancy in the life of the church today and equip you with the knowledge necessary to engage with others. How we approach biblical inerrancy is a telling component of how we approach our lives, those around us, and the Bible. Interestingly, recently, Craig Blomberg blames books like Harold Lindsell’sBattle For the Bible () and such a book as The Jesus Crisis for people leaving the faith because of their strong stance on inerrancy as a presupposition. In a web interview in conducted by Justin Taylor, Blomberg responded this way to books that hold to a firm.

If a person denies the doctrine of inerrancy, in effect, they are denying God's Word. God tells us His Word is pure. In the Book of Proverbs we read. Every word of God is pure Do not add to his words, lest he reprove you, and you be found a liar (Proverbs ,6). If there are any mistakes in that Word, then it is not pure. Book of Isaiah. Book of Matthew. Book of Mark. Book of Luke. Book of Acts. Night Scenes in the Bible. Book of Revelation. Seven Deadly Sins.

The book focuses on this vital issue of the inerrancy of Scripture. Some Arminians are content to hold that the Bible is the infallible Word of God but it is not inerrant.

They strain to find errors and in the process they also erode the confidence we are to have in the Bible to speak for God, for His Christ, and for His salvation.3/5(6). The book focuses on this vital issue of the inerrancy of Scripture.

The Importance of Biblical Inerrancy Bernard Ramm, Ph.D., on pages of his book entitled Special Revelation and the Word of God, states.

The great attribute of the written word is objectivity. The oral word too has its measure of objectivity, but it cannot match.

So the reason inerrancy rises is because we claim this book is the very Word of God. The center of God’s revelation is Jesus. And he is called the Word of God incarnate. And he said Scripture cannot be broken. He said: Until heaven and earth pass away not an iota, not a dot, littlest {?} of dot in iota will pass away from the law until all is.

The Importance of Inerrancy-Part 1 By: Dr. John Ankerberg, Dr. John Weldon Previously we have seen defined inerrancy and seen the evidence for it. Now, we will document why the subject is important and show the weakness of the alternate position. As one scholar notes, “The evidence that those who surrender the doctrine of inerrancy [ ].

After making this point, Piper then attempts a definition of Inerrancy: The biblical authors, with God as their guide, do not teach anything false or command as God’s will anything displeasing to God What the authors intend for us to understand or obey, properly understood in its nearer or wider context, is true.

The Importance of Inerrancy for Biblical Authority and the Health of the Church. If inerrancy is inescapable and yet Christians do not accept it for the Bible, the church will suffer the consequences of a fallible divine revelation.

Inerrancy is foundational to all other essential Christian doctrines. It is granted that some other doctrines (like the atoning death and bodily resurrection of Christ) are more essential to salvation.

However, all soteriological (salvation-related) doctrines derive their divine authority from. Justin Taylor has been listening to the panel discussion at T4G on the topic of inerrancy.

The panel passed along these book recommendations: Simon Gathercole recommends Biblical Authority: A Critique of the Rogers/McKim Proposalby John D. Woodbridge, for a historical study of what the church has held through the centuries. Mark Dever recommends Christ and the Bible by John.

The Importance of Inerrancy. The question of the importance of inerrancy can be approached both doctrinally and historically. Doctrinally, inerrancy is an important doctrine because: (1) it is attached to the character of God; (2) It is foundational to other essential doctrines; (3) it is taught in the Scriptures, and (4) it is the historic.

Inerrnacy is shown to be a doctrine of crucial importance to the church. Among the chapter titles are these: Christ's View of Scripture - Alleged Errors and Discrepancies in the Original Manuscripts of the Bible - Higher Criticism and Biblical Inerrancy - Legitimate Hermeneutics - The Human Authorship /5(23).

Yet biblical inerrancy is extremely important. Christianity rests upon whether the words that are the basis of our faith are true.

This issue reflects on the character of God and is foundational to our understanding of everything the Bible teaches. The Bible itself claims to be perfect.

The importance of that question has not diminished in the least. So let’s look at ten things that will help us understand what we mean (and don’t mean) when we speak of an inerrant Bible.

The doctrine of biblical inerrancy is an extremely important one because the truth does matter. This issue reflects on the character of God and is foundational to our understanding of everything the Bible teaches.

Here are some reasons why we should absolutely believe in biblical inerrancy: 2. The book focuses on this vital issue of the inerrancy of Scripture.

Some Arminians are content to hold that the Bible is the infallible Word of God but it is not inerrant. They strain to find errors and in the process they also erode the confidence we are to have in the Bible to 3/5. The Importance of Bible Inerrancy to our Christian Faith We’ve seen the absolute critical nature of the role that inerrant Scripture plays in our receiving of God’s self-revelation.

Scripture is the method by which Lord Jesus Christ reveals God the Father to us, and the instrument by which our Triune God exercises authority over us. Countless books have been written explaining, defining, and defending this doctrine, not to mention the affirmations and denials of the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy.

But the gist of inerrancy is the belief that the Bible is God’s Word and that when God speaks, He speaks truth. The importance of Biblical inerrancy can best be seen in its relationships. In relation to the character of God.

In relation to inspiration. A full and high view of inspiration requires inerrancy as a natural and necessary part of it. Introduction1. “Inerrancy” is a term used to explain that the Bible is completely true and contains no errors in the original autographs.

The reason inerrancy is an issue is because some religious “scholars” believe that the scripture contains errors, yet they continue to claim to believe in “inspiration.” Actually, they’re trying to redefine “inspiration” to include possible. This book is the published result of the many lectures and sermons that were delivered by numerous authors during the Inerrancy Summit in on the campus of /5(33).

ICBI made many statements on the importance of inerrancy. They insisted that [1] “ we further deny that inerrancy can be rejected without grave consequences, both to the individual and to the Church” CSBI, XIX, emphasis added in all these citations).By: Dr.

John Ankerberg, Dr. John Weldon; © The authors explain the weakness of the alternate position held by many: limited inerrancy. They say limited inerrancy is simply meaningless, biblically and practically.

In fact, no Scripture ever gives us the right to view any Scripture as less than fully inspired and inerrant. The Weakness of [ ].His book, The Erosion of Inerrancy in Evangelicalism: Responding to New Challenges to Biblical Authority addresses the issue of inerrancy and ANE studies head on and offers a confessionally faithful model of approaching ANE parallels to Scripture.
